Mississippi Votes to Replace Confederate-Themed State Flag.
According to NBC News, 68% of Mississippi voted to replace the 126-year-old flag.
"The New Magnolia" design features a magnolia blossom in the center of the flag, circled by 20 stars as a representation of Mississippi becoming the 20th state.
The bottom of the circle says, "In God We Trust.".
Artist Rocky Vaughan's design was chosen from 3,000 submissions.
[The new design] represents Mississippi's sense of hope and rebirth, as the Magnolia often blooms more than once and has a long blooming season, Department of Archives and History, via statement.
Tate Reeves thinks more effort is needed to end social divides.
We must find a way to come together.
To heal our wounds, to forgive, to resolve that a page has been turned, to trust each other.
With God's help, we can, Gov.
